This astonishing time-lapse shows the construction, piece by piece, of the 124,000 ton, 985ft long Aidaprima cruise ship.
Incredibly, the video was filmed over the course of five years, with the building work having started back in 2011 at the Mitsubishi shipyard in Nagasaki, Japan.
The ocean liner that can cater for 3,300 passengers is the new flagship of German cruise operator Aida Cruises, and was christened on the River Elbe on May 7 this year.
It is almost like a sped-up version of giant lego - sections are added piece by piece as the ship takes shape.
It is estimated to have cost around £450million ($645million) to build. Aidaprima has 1,643 staterooms and a selection of 14 different room variations.
